Hurray! The BEACH! By OC

Sunday, after going to church and having a quick lunch, Papa and Grammy grabbed Auntie Mimi (Grammy’s sister) and Pippin, Gimli, Grandma OC and me, and we went to the Beach at Pismo!

It was WONDERFUL! It was 98 here at home AND raining with lots of lightening in the sky, so I was really happy that we left! It was so pretty there and COOL!!! They said it only got to 68 there!

We took Auntie Mimi with us because her birthday is this week, and we love her and thought that she might like to go to a pretty beach and be cool. She walked with us and took lots of pictures. We think that she enjoyed herself a lot and we loved having her with us, too!

When we first got there, we
went for a walk. I was so excited, and wanted to go, so they put my wheelchair on, and off we went.

I got to sniff around and check out things just like everyone else. It was so much fun! I even got a really good run in!

I don’t get out to much anymore since it turned so hot, and since they decided to keep me and Sadie separated completely, so that I can’t get to her anymore after that last fight. I still yell at her when she comes into the room… at least until they get out the squirt bottle…

Anyway, after a while, we all went back to the car, sat down and visited.

Then Grammy decided to take Gimli out by himself so he could get a good look at the water.

The rest of us had to stay with Papa and Mimi at the car. We were NOT happy, and Pippin really wanted to go out too!

He talked to Papa and convinced him to call Grammy back and take him out too, but then he didn’t like it when the water came up to get him!

Then Papa came back and took both BG and Pippin for a walk up the beach… When they got back, BG grabbed Papa’s chair!

I TOLD him that he had better get out of it…

But he just sat there and looked smug!

We sat and visited for awhile more, and then Papa took Pip out for a while for some alone time with him.

Then, Papa took BG out for some alone time with him, and while we were watching Papa walking BG, the pups noticed some people coming down the beach with a Basset Hound.

They thought maybe it was Martha or Bailey, and so we called out to it, but it turned out to be a boy basset.

When it got time, for dinner, they took Mimi to their favorite Fish and Chips place by the pier. We had to stay in the car while they ate, but we were pretty tired, so didn’t mind too much. We KNEW we’d get jerky treats when they got back to the car. All in all, it really was a wonderful day at the beach, and we all enjoyed ourselves! 

P.S. We saw some people with 3 corgis come onto the beach, but they were quite a ways up from us and to far the even get a picture of them...  Grammy was NOT happy!

Who would have thought that 68 degrees would feel cool but I would love to go someplace right now where it is under 70. You are lucky pups to get all aired out and have some wet mud happy times.


P.S. I hope that Miss Sadie is still getting her attentions even though she can not be in the general population.

I'm a little jealous that you live that close to a beach and the temperature was only 68. That is perfect! I haven't been to the beach for years. Looks like everyone had a wonderful time. Loved the videos!

I love to see those little dogs run around like that.

A beach and it was 68 Degrees - Heaven.

I'm glad y'all had a good time. sandie

what a fun outing and I'm glad, OC, you got to go and have some fun and stretch your legs!! Koda knows the squirt bottle well so he sympathizes with you, but it is good to keep you and Sadie apart since you guys tend to get on each other's nerves a lot

wow, what a difference between 98 degrees and 68 degrees! I know that 68 degree day was perfect for the pups and all!

cute pictures/videos!

Going to the beach sounds like a lot of fun. They don't allow doggies at the beaches near our home.
